Taking a ride on the Erie Express Train or the horse-drawn carriage or trolley are highlights of a visit to Sauder Village!

Erie Express Train: 

Travel back in time on our Erie Express Train, a miniature replica of the original 1863 C.P. Huntington train that played such an important role in this country’s history. The train has five cars, including one that is wheelchair accessible. Ride on the Erie Express Train that is included with admission to the Historic Village. Guests can board the train at the Elmira Depot  (Building #39) at the 1920 Main Street. Catch a ride on our train! This fun-filled ride takes you around the perimeter of the Historic Village and stops at the Erie Express Train Station (Building #20). The train ride is not only fun, but also offers an easy way for guests to travel through the expanding “Walk Through Time” experience at Sauder Village!



Horse-drawn Trolley and Carriage Rides:

We now offer Horse-Drawn Trolley Rides which run Wednesday – Saturday and leave from the Welcome Center. The Horse-Drawn Buggy Ride runs Friday and Saturday and leaves from the Livery at our 1920s Main Street. Both rides take you on a small tour of the perimeter of the village (the Buggy Ride is slightly modified not going through Natives & Newcomers). Rides are weather dependent and the cost is $5.00 per person ($4.00 for members). Tickets can only be purchased at the Welcome Center.
